XF 1.3 Purge simpleCache


New member

for some reason I have a very large simpleCache entry in the xf_data_registry table. It´s spreaded over multiple keys. Is there a way to delete the whole entry? As far as I understand simpleCache has no TTL?

That cache is sometimes used by addons.

The typical behavior of XenForo and most addons is that they will automatically rebuild their cache/registry entries if they are removed. So it is probably OK to clear it.

How big is it?

Thanks for your reply. The size was 16 MB and caused serious problems with our database replication. The problem was, that we accidentially used simpleCache as an application cache and saved many, many keys in it. I had to write a little script that removes all the keys we don´t want because the "cache" never expired. But now everything is fine.
